Trevor Edward Jesty (born 2 June 1948[1]) is an English former cricketer and cricket umpire. As a player he was an all rounder (a right-handed batsman and medium-pace bowler[1]) who played 490 first-class matches, scoring 21,916 runs and taking 585 wickets, between 1966 and 1991.

Jesty was born in Gosport, Hampshire, and played for Hampshire, Surrey, and Lancashire in the English County Championship.[1] He played overseas for Border and Griqualand West in South Africa, and Canterbury in New Zealand.[1]

Jesty played 10 one-day internationals for England, most of them during the Benson & Hedges World Series Cup tournament in 1983. His highlight was scoring 52* off 35 balls against New Zealand at Adelaide. He was named in the England squad for the 1983 World Cup. He was named as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1983 for his performances during the 1982 English cricket season.[2]

Following his retirement as a player, Jesty became a cricket umpire in England, and served as the reserve umpire for the Fourth Test Match at The Oval between England and Pakistan in 2006. In 2007 he umpired in the unauthorised Indian Cricket League.[3] He continued as a first-class umpire until his retirement in 2013.[4]
